Richmond Heights, OH (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Natural cosmetics are a lucrative market, hundreds of new products making some sort of natural claim are introduced each year. Since there is currently no legally supported definition for what qualifies as a natural cosmetic, this can lead to confusion for consumers and retailers alike.

With the absence of a legal definition, marketers and private agencies have largely been left to create their own meaning for the term "natural". This has spawned a multitude of natural cosmetic standards all vying for consumer acceptance. Likewise, some individual publishers of natural-leaning blogs and websites freely publish articles promoting or maligning various ingredients and products with little to no oversight. All of these factors conspire to confuse consumers who seek a clear answer to "What is a Natural Cosmetic?"

This special report, "Helping Your Customers Understand: What Is a Natural Cosmetic?" was written to be a resource for quickly understanding several of the most widely accepted natural product standards, and to provide some suggestions on how to decide if a product maker is actually being true to their natural product claims. Key topics covered in the 20+ page paper include:

  •     What Is a Natural Cosmetic?,
  •     Choosing a Standard To Define Natural Products,
  •     Should a Company's Products Be Certified? and
  •     Two Claims To Watch Out For With Natural Products.

The paper also includes cited references and a handy short-list of internationally recognized natural product standards that retailers can use as a guide for stocking their shelves, and for answering consumer questions. Interested salons, spas, boutiques and other types of beauty product retailers are invited to gain access to a copy of the report by visiting: http://www.farbotanicals.com/natural-cosmetic.
